Is this how the Russians treat KGB?
Yes. Does not matter what the hell you do. If you are going against Putin then you can be God himself and still be taken to jail.
Carlsen, Fischer, Kasparov: they're all Children of the Matrix and part of the conspiracy.
Those look like they would be hilarious, I am surprised I never heard of him before. Does he do it in a Douglas Adams style?
Korchnoi was KGB though
That's seems a reasonable explanation about Kasparov's wins over Karpov who was much better in the 80s and 90s.
Actually, all the K players were KGB, it was the super secret code. Took years for the CIA to crack.
Keres, Korchnoi, Karpov, Kasparov, Kamsky, Kramnik, Karlsen.
Don't forget Kivanchuk.
(When you think he is picking his nose, he is in fact, tuning his radio implant for better reception)
no really Korchnoi was KGB. You know its not so easy to implant a soviet spy, you really need a good background story and lots of drama.
KGB = Комитет государственной безопасности при Совете Министров or Komitet gossudarstwennoi besopasnosti pri Sowjete Ministrow SSSR.
its the comitee for state security.
According to the Russian Patriarch, Putin was chosen by God, so that's not likely to happen.
Carlsen is an alien that came to the earth to destroy Anand and all the human race...
Maybe. Perhaps Carlsen is actually part of XCOM and Anand is the alien? He might also be the Doctor and is currently trying to stop an alien plot.
